Overview

"Creswell's Research Design is an accessible and useful book that stimulates students through walk through experiences, use of exercises, and production of actual writing samples. It is a book that models the types of issues that best suit different approaches and allows students to understand when to use mixed methods. Furthermore, its focus on theory and paradigms is done in a way that helps students decode their meaning."

--MARTHA MONTERO-SIEBURTH, University of Massachusetts, Boston

"One of the most formidable challenges of research design is stating your purpose. Creswell's approach takes the guesswork out of the process."

--STEVE GUERRIERO, Organization & Management, Antioch New England Graduate School

The Second Edition of the bestselling Research Design: Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches offers a unique comparison of three key approaches to inquiry. This comparison begins with preliminary consideration of knowledge claims for all three approaches, a review of the literature, and reflections about the importance of writing and ethics in scholarly inquiry. The book also addresses the key elements of the process of research: writing an introduction; stating a purpose for the study; identifying research questions and hypotheses; using theory; defining, delimiting and stating the significance of the study; and advancing methods and procedures for data collection and analysis.

Key Features:

  • Provides a clear presentation of how to implement a mixed methods design in your proposal or plan as well as show how to implementqualitative and quantitative approaches
  • Presents the ethical issues that may arise in quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods studies
  • Offers extensive writing tips to help get your research plan started in the right direction
  • Contains the latest developments in qualitative inquiry--including advocacy, participatory, and emancipatory approaches

This book is ideal for readers who seek assistance in designing a full research study or planning a proposal for a scholarly journal article, dissertation or thesis. The book is an invaluable reference on the basics of research design as well as an effective text for graduate courses in Research Methods, Research Design, and related topics. The book serves a broad audience of social and human scientists in fields of marketing, management, criminal justice, psychology, sociology, K-12 education, higher and post-secondary education, nursing, health sciences, urban studies, and family research.

 



Describes the purpose statement/the use of a theory/combined qualitative & quantitative designs/scholarly writing/etc.

Editorial Reviews

Alison Scott-Baumann
"The success of mixed methods is particularly noticeable in medical and health-related research: in order to secure funding, it is advisable to incorporate a quantitative element into any such research project, and from the point of view of working with human subjects, most qualitative researchers would argue that a qualitative element is required. " —Alison Scott-Baumann, University of Gloucestershire
Organizational Research Methods
"It is both usefully expanded and very reader friendly. The book has a distinctive helpful tone and an almost "how to do it" style. If one liked the first edition, then he or she will probably adore this one."
Booknews
Comparing three different approaches to inquiries in the human and social sciences, Cresswell (U. of Nebraska at Lincoln) looks at the knowledge claims for the approaches and explains the processes of research design and writing. Written to aid students and scholars in preparing proposals for journals or dissertations, the text takes readers through the steps of the process of research, addressing the different approaches of the three methods.

John W. Creswell is a Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In addition to teaching at the University, he has authored numerous articles on mixed methods research, qualitative methodology, and general research design and 22 books (including new editions), many of which focus on types of research designs, comparisons of different qualitative methodologies, and the nature and use of mixed methods research. His books are translated into many languages and used around the world. He held the Clifton Institute Endowed Professor Chair for five years at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. For an additional five year, Dr. Creswell served as a co-director at the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which provided support for scholars incorporating qualitative and mixed methods research into projects for extramural funding. He served as the founding Co-Editor for the SAGE journal, the Journal of Mixed Methods Research, and as an Adjunct Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan where he assisted investigators in the health sciences and education with research methodology for National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation projects. He also served extensively as a consultant in the health services research area for the Veterans Administration. Dr. Creswell was a Senior Fulbright Scholar to South Africa and in 2008 lectured to faculty at five universities on mixed methods in education and the health sciences. In 2012 he again was a Senior Fulbright Scholar to Thailand. In 2011 he served as a co-leader of a national working group at NIH developing “best practices” for mixed methods research in the health sciences. In spring 2013, Dr. Creswell was a Visiting Professor at Harvard’s School of Public Health. In summer, 2013, he conducted mixed methods training at Cambridge University in the UK. In 2014, he will be awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

    Creswell does well

    As a professional educator seeking an advanced degree at an advanced age, I have been impressed by Creswell's ability to explain the process of writing a dissertation. The format of the chapters in the book make it easy to use as a template for constructing a dissertation proposal and, ultimately, the dissertation. Well done!

    Save yourself the pain..

    I was forced to read this book for a graduate methodology course at Harvard. This is a verbose text on how to write an academically acceptable research paper. It overtly accepts all the suppositions of the academic writing process, many of which are highly debatable, while thoroughly venerating highbrow academia¿s proclivity for political correctness and leftism. Some portions border on the ridiculous and literally outright laughable with respect to how pedantic they are. The only reason this book was written, as he himself notes implicitly at one point, was that someone was going to write it. The simple lack of an authoritative text on graduate research methods begged for someone to hammer out 230+ pages of nonsense. Then again, ¿John W. Creswell is a Professor of Educational Psychology at Teachers College, University of Nebraska-Lincoln,¿ so it not like this pursuit comes as a big surprise. If you find the Chicago Manual of Style to be intriguing and edifying, and / or you are a total tool of the academic system, then this book is for you¿

    Good guide to preparing a genuine research paper.

    My only reservation is that it is limited unnecessarily to the social sciences. The advice would apply to a broader set of academic disciplines. Lots of good examples.

    Quality ground level research information

    This was a text used for one of my doctoral classes. I found this to be one of the best and practical books to explain basics to doctoral research design.
